Useless Osborne’s pathetic excuses for his own failure

The worthless George Osborne is now bleating about how the eurozone crisis is damaging Britain’s supposed recovery. John Maynard Keynes is quoted as having said, “When the facts change, I change my mind. What do you do, sir?” With the eurozone in a much worse state than it was in 2010 when the Coalition scraped into power, one could say that the facts have changed – a depression in the eurozone, where we send 40% of our exports, will clearly harm our economy. But even though the facts have changed, utter tosser (in my opinion) Osborne refuses to change his policies. I think I can guess what Keynes would have said about that – and it wouldn’t necessarily have been polite.

Listen, Osborne you prat (in my opinion), we are not going to get growth from exporting our way out of debt, so you, yes you have to do something apart from making excuses and blaming everyone else for your incompetence. Here are just two things that even a dickhead (in my opinion) like you should understand Mr Osborne:

1. Declare a state of economic emergency, put all public-sector managerial and administrative staff on a 4-day week and use the £100m to £200m a week saved to put into building homes, roads, reservoirs, broadband networks and anything else that helps reduce unemployment. At the same time, you have to use some of this money to provide employers with a generous subsidy to take on the long-term unemployed so these new  jobs go to British unemployed and not foreigners – remember at least 20 million Spaniards, Greeks, Portuguese and others will be thinking of moving to ‘benefits Britain’ to work or just leach off ordinary taxpayers.

2. Abolish Corporation Tax and replace it with retention of VAT so that all companies doing business in Britain have to pay tax on their operations and cannot use tax havens like Jersey and the Cayman Islands to avoid tax. This would also lead to many foreign companies moving their HQs to Britain creating hundreds of thousands of well-paid jobs

Being chancellor isn’t complicated, Mr Osborne, it’s just that you are too arrogant and incompetent to adapt your policies to changing circumstances.
